I always loved the Sims 2 CAS background and wanted to bring it back to life - so I did! Well yes, it is not an exact copy of the original, it's just an inspired version of it.

Hope you will enjoy it as much as I do!

Sadly I´m unable to make the Background work for a 32:9 aspect ratio.
I´m using a simple image to create the background, it´s not a 3D environment like Brujah´s CAS Room.
The image mirrors in a 16:9 aspect ratio. I was able to create a 32:9 texture, yet it mirrors exactly the same - in a 16:9 ratio. I do not have any skills in modifying or creating new meshes, thus, unfortunately, I will not be able to make the background work for a 32:9 screen. I apologize.

Kind Regards,
